    When taking everything into account, Samsung is the leader in SSD performance and innovation imho.

    I suggest that you consider hardware-based encryption as well. Samsung EVO is a good place to start.

    Agree, I would list the top 2 as:
    1. Samsung
    2. Seagate
    I have 2 Seagate Firecuda Hybrid drives that are wicked fast, when I next go to full SSD I will either go Seagate or Samsung.

    I had used Samsung EVO 850. Great Performance as promised. Currently I use PNY which is also great on my laptop with dual booted.
    You get better speed and 10 years warranty for pro series. Samsung EVO gives only 3-5 years depending on the model. But price is also higher.

    I have installed on my old laptop the Samsung EVO 850 for over 2 years now.
    The increase of speed will give you a big smile.
    It has 5 years warranty and i am using it in SATA II connection,if you have SATA III you will take the full advantage of the SSD.
    So far this SSD is running very good without any decrease in performance ( i tested last month and disk health is 100% ).
    That's great for me because i always install and uninstall software and i was concerned that this behaviour will cause
    problem much sooner that i was expected.
    A second good choice would be Corsair.
    Some of my friends are using it and they are very happy with its performance. Also Corsair is cheaper than Samsung.

    They both have high end products and low end product. Choose wisely if you want the best performance.

    I think you can find this information from your HDD. If you can check it on the net you can see what type of connection is using

    I would have said WD if it wasn't about SSDs(soon tho WD will release SSDs) but Samsung is a clear winner here.

    But in reliability and performance Samsung EVO SSDs are the best.

    The batteries were to blame here,but dont worry SSDs and HDDs don't have batteries inside them.
